Would you agree that the toe box is more narrow than the Hampton?  That is at least how it looks in the picture.

What would you say, SFTG?

Thanks...and yes, the toe box is narrower than the Hampton, IMO.

Generally, although unionmade is closer to me, I prefer needsupply and epaulet for the service and more reasonable prices.

Since I'm in CA, with tax and no discount code the difference is over $100 on a pair of $500 Aldens vs. needsupply.

Unionmade is the bomb.  I peppered them endlessly (every 2 weeks for months) about their upcoming ravello kirkwood boot and the guy called me back when it came in and I was able to get it in my size.  They took it from the warehouse and held it for me on the day it arrived, and it was the first time I had bought something from the store.

****PSA****  IT appears TSM has some NST lace ups in Cigar and Whiskey in stock in multiple sizes on Barrie last.

 

Good hunting!

 

 

See Ya,

I would say the Snap's toe box is similar to the Hampton. Both the Snap and Hampton run TTS, but I prefer the Snap. For my feet, the Snap is one of Alden's best, and I have numerous Alden for BB models on it.

Packed up the various boots today as summertime approaches. Had a nice final mac-session before bagging and boxing them up for the heat.

Closet now appears to need more shoes...

good looking combo

I have never been to a Unionmade store but their collection overall seems to be well curated, and their stores are located in areas where people care about clothes. Good recipe for success. I have looked at many of their Alden models, but I like E widths so I doubt I will be buying much from them soon

Shoe fairy arrived.  Still waiting on a few more pairs.  Posted below are:

 

6831 Whiskey Full strap

1031 Cigar split toe slip on

13132 Cigar chukka

1473 Whiskey chukka

 

Not arrived yet #8 NST on Barrie, Cigar and Whiskey NST on Aberdeen and 2 Cigar belts.  Got the whiskey belt.  I still need Ravello and that's the hardest one to find.

 

A shout out to all of you that caused this addition.  Could not have done it without all of the great posts, photos and tips!AppleMark

Good stuff. I have the whiskey and cigar chukkas, both are excellent models. Your cigar split toe loafers and whiskey NSTs both look excellent. Could I ask where you got these from?

TSM has a cigar NST blucher in my size... I have more cigar than anything else but they are still calling my name...
